They are both part of every release.
The repository objects refer to a repository as a whole -- that is, an
IMAP server or a Maildir tree. From a Repository, you can find out what
folders are out there, get Folder objects, and the like.
The Folder objects refer to a mailbox. Folders let you find out what
messages are in them, copy or delete messages, set flags, etc.
